2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben,jumping two yeas from now,can you rank this group????Tanaka,Jon Gray,Danny Salazer,Patrick Corbin,D.J.Peterson,Alex Cobb,Matt Adams and Odor.. Thanks....
(John from Boston)
ALL of the ranking questions. In two years, let's go Gray, Tanaka, Salazar, Cobb, Corbin, Adams, Odor, Peterson (Ben Carsley)
2013-09-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Harry. What is your outlook for Patrick Corbin next season? I know it's unreasonable to expect the dominance he showed in the first half of this season but do you see the possibility of a #2, or something else?
(Ray from NY)
He's more of a 3 for me. He has great command and is young with nearly two full seasons under his belt, so maybe he's a solid 3 with a 2 ceiling. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-08-08 17:30:00 (link to chat)In a deep, NL-only keeper league, I will face a dilemma with Patrick Corbin in the off-season. I can do one of three things with Corbin: keep him one more year at $1, extend him one year at a salary of $6, or extend two more year at a salary of $11. There seems to be some consensus that Corbin won't sustain this year's results and things like FIP and xFIP suggest his results are a bit better than his performance this year. What would you do with Corbin in this situation? Thanks.
(Noel Baldwin from Calgary, Canada)
Hey Noel:

If it's a full NL-only league, I'd probably go $11. I would agree that Corbin isn't going to sustain this level of performance, but an ERA in the low 3s (which veers closer to the FIP that you mention above) is a good possibility. My guess is that Corbin is a $16-20 earner in NL-only next year. My rule of thumb for contracts is $5 or more below value. $6 is the safe play with Corbin. $11 is if you really believe. Based on your comments, you might be agnostic about Corbin and $6 might be safer. I'd roll the dice on $11. (Mike Gianella)
2013-05-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Probably a question best for a fantasy chat, but In a 20-team dynasty league: Giancarlo Stanton, Clayton Kershaw, and Patrick Corbin for Yu Darvish, Shelby Miller, Craig Kimbrel, Neftali Feliz, and Byron Buxton. Assuming the trade benefits the needs of both teams, which side would you rather have?
(Dr. Mike from Milwaukee)
Kershaw and Darvish are nearly a wash (maybe a slight edge to Kershaw), and it's hard to bank on Feliz, so it comes down to Giancarlo-Corbin for Miller-Kimbrel-Buxton. I love Kimbrel, but closers are risky business from a dynasty standpoint, and though I prefer Miller to Corbin by a decent measure, I don't think that Buxton bridges the gap to Giancarlo. I feel that prospects are extremely overvalued in dynasty formats, especially when compared to players like Stanton - Stanton is young enough to still qualify as a prospect and already one of the best players in the game, and his future will be even brighter once he escapes the island of misfit toys in Miami.

2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who from the following list of young 4th/5th starter talent types have the best chances at a solid 2013: Dan Straily, Jose Quintana, Joe Kelly, Drew Smyly, AJ Griffin, David Phelps, Erasmo Ramirez, and Patrick Corbin?
(Paul from DC)
I don't know if Kelly, Smyly, or Corbin will get a full slate of starts, I know Phelps won't. That leaves Griffin, Straily, Quintana, and Ramirez and I'd lean toward one of the first two. (R.J. Anderson)
